NATHAN A. GREENBLATT is a senior managing associate in Sidley’s Palo Alto office. His practice focuses on intellectual property litigation in the district courts, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the U.S. International Trade Commission and international arbitration tribunals. He has helped litigate high-profile cases involving novel legal issues and over a billion dollars at stake.
Nathan enjoys tackling important issues at the cutting edge of the law, and has done so through publication of numerous articles, submission of amicus curiae briefs in en banc Federal Circuit proceedings, assistance to court committees revising local rules and jury instructions, and service as teaching assistant for a patent litigation class at Stanford Law School. The legal issues Nathan has litigated have run the gamut from pure patent issues, to contract and license disputes, to antitrust claims, to standard-essential patent portfolio valuations, to IP-related criminal charges, and everything in between.
While in law school, Nathan interned with the Honorable Colleen Kollar-Kotelly at the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, and the Honorable Joseph L. Tauro at the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts. Prior to attending law school, Nathan lived in China and Germany. He is currently following developments in the law and policy of autonomous vehicles.
